Righty, I have some bugs/issues:

(sorted by priority)

severe: sometimes, at random, an entire line of pixels won't render. this goes away if you close out and reload lcdproc. I can't reproduce it, but it happens randomly.

medium: textdata can't have a space in it. this is not obvious until you wonder why scrolling isn't working.

minor: text scrolls 2 chars at a time. how about the option to move by X chars, or leave it at one.

wishlist: a reload/reset button on the right click menu to reload all images and the screen.xml file would be nice (assists with screen development)

wishlist: per pixel placement of text/images. (BTW, you can move text in odd ways if you specify decimals: 1.5 is legal.)

This is most likely a problem in the T6963C driver/timing.

Bug found. It seems be working now so this should be fixed in next build.

This happened only with static text defined in the screen file. Plugin texts were scrolling correctly. I had forgot to replace one function call with a variable so the text formatting (scroll included) was called twice. Scrolling one characters at a time now.

Coming.

Per pixel placement of graphics is supposed to be working already but I remember seen some bugs which could have been either in rendering or in the display driver I was using at the time.
When font support is added (text handled as graphics) per pixel placement of text should also work.

more bugs: (I've been testing on 98 SE, btw):

It looks like your input plugs are XP/NT only. they don't load on 98.

request: a screen.xml "debugger" or at least a runtime complaint about a certain line...

Just did some testing with WinME and noticed the same thing and the plugins/drivers that loaded changed randomly from time to time.
But I think I was able to fix it now as I noticed that the main LCDInfo was statically linked to the MS runtime libraries and the plugins were dynamically linked. Everything is now dynamically linked as it was supposed to be and I didn't see problems with WinME anymore.

You're right and some cleanup of the log output should be done and also clear error reported if some problem in screen file is noticed.


I also just set up a bug tracker to http://www.skippari.net/bugtracker/ so in future that will be the preferred place to report bugs.
